Shook continues its expansion with its new office in Atlanta, providing additional coverage for clients in the Southeast and on the East Coast. Our highly experienced trial attorneys have years of practice in product liability defense, automotive litigation, pharmaceutical and medical devices and toxic tort matters. 

“Shook’s entry into this region makes perfect sense,” said Atlanta Managing Partner Colin Kelly, whose preeminent trial practice has attracted clients in food and beverage, materials manufacturing, shipping and transportation, and technology, among others. “This combination creates a synergy to grow Shook’s existing clients in Atlanta and allows our team to collaborate with some of the nation’s finest trial attorneys whom we’ve known for a number of years.”

Atlanta’s litigation team handles cases involving environmental issues, mass tort, technology and telecommunications, life sciences and biotechnology, consumer fraud, asbestos and talc, and energy. They are known for their track record in “bet-the-company” litigation, crisis management and medical malpractice defense. They have written or lectured about trial strategy, product recall, autonomous vehicles, eDiscovery, 3D-printing liability issues and the use of social media by trial attorneys. 

Like many other Shook attorneys nationwide, individual Atlanta team members are recognized by their peers and their communities for outstanding legal work, receiving accolades from Georgia Super Lawyers, Lawyer Monthly, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the State Bar of Georgia and The National Law Journal

And in keeping with our firm’s core values, our Atlanta attorneys have committed time, energy and efforts to making their city a better place for everyone, not only through pro bono representation but through services that include the Truancy Intervention Project of Georgia, Atlanta Lawyers for Animal Welfare, PAWS Atlanta and the Grant Park Conservancy.
